Video made by the New York Daily News of the owner and chef of Serendipity 3 talking about the $69 hot dog. Also features the rep from the Guiness Book, who admits Serendipity 3 came to them to “manufacture” another world record.
Unfortunately, most comments to this video are rather vulgar.
Here is the back story to what you see in the video. It is from the hometown newspaper of Rock Hill, NC, where the first customer hails from:
Not having my glasses on I thought this thread was about a $.69 hot dog. I thought hey… I could do that. I buy these Value Time hot dogs for 89c… for 8 to a 12oz pack! And hey… my dog loves em! He just gets one a day though.
Who was that great lookin girl on SNL that always said… “Ohhh…………….. nevermind” ???
Thanks John for bringing this thread alive on Facebook…
With all the publicity today on these wannabe Haute dogs, it seriously makes ya wonder… Next thing you know we’ll be afraid to walk up to a hot dog stand unless we have a serious line of credit. (Then choke and puke once we realize what we paid for)….
Hot Dog Carts
That’s got to be one very tasty hot dog to cost $69
Well, I have to say I’ve enjoyed the $24 dollar Black Label/Pat LaFrieda burger at Minetta tavern-but I’m not going near a $69 dollar hot dog.
Now there’s an $80 hot dog. http://www.roadfood.com/Forums/The-80-Hot-Dog-m659885.aspx http://www.roadfood.com/Forums/The-80-Hot-Dog-m659885.aspx I’m sure someone soon will have to charge more so they can get in the Guinness Book of World Records. Anyone want to come to my house for a hot dog? I’ll charge $100, give back $50, get my name in the record book, and serve a better quality frank than this abomination.
Why do I hear crickets this early in the morning?
I don’t know, John. It sounds really good to me. [lol]
When I hit the Lottery I’m gonna buy one just so I can report about it in here. And John Fox, I’m gonna take you with me and get one for you too just so no one can say you’re a closed minded purist but rather an objective hot dog critic willing to try any dog in the interest of fareness and objectivity.[:p][:p][:D][:D][:D]
Depending on the brand and how they’re made, veggie dogs are not bad.
I am an affirmed carnivore, but I have friends that are vegetarians. I had doubts about trying them, but they’re actually OK. Not something I’d buy on my own, but nothing to get all worked up about “having to eat one”, either.
Oh, good post, TacoDrew!
Anyone that would pay that for a Dog,, Hey I got this island to sell ya in N.Y. !?!?
Seems silly when you can get this at Hot Dougs in Chicago for $9.00:
Foie Gras and Sauternes Duck Sausage with Truffle Aioli, Foie Gras Mousse and Fleur de Sel
We celebrated National Hot Dog Day with a dozen or so real (pork/beef) hot dogs, which plumped out rather nicely, overflowing their buns, and they were served with good brown mustard, chopped onions, some shredded cheese and my very own hot dog sauce (a little on the spicy side)…..made from a recipe that was the original sauce for NYS hot dogs upstate. And the whole meal fed 5 hungry people and came nowhere near costing $69.00!
I once got a $100, truffle-topped cheesesteak in Philadelphia (only because I had an expense account and because the magazine paying the bills wanted to know about it), and felt so stupid eating it. I had only a taste, wanting to save appetite for the much-better $5 cheese steaks that awaited.
